Tom Orry, Editor - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Xbox 360
One of my favourite Modern Warfare 2 moments came during a Spec Ops level I played earlier in the week with Seb. He was on the ground, running around like a highly trained soldier, while I was raining down hell on the enemies while flying high in a helicopter. I may have misjudged my attacks a few times, firing down explosive rounds a little too near Mr Ford's feet, and had to issue a few last minute expletive-strewn battle commands to save his bacon. Spec Ops mode is full of brilliant little missions like this and is one of the reasons I rate Modern Warfare 2 so highly. For some reason Seb doesn't want to play with me any more.

Wesley Yin-Poole, Deputy Editor – Real Life: The Proposal
I've been away in New York with the girlfriend. On Monday night Eastern time, I proposed to the love of my life. Before the event, people asked me if I was nervous. I wasn't. I was deliriously excited. It was planned as a surprise, from flight to hotel to proposal, and I just couldn't wait to pop the question. And when I did, in a moonlit Central Park, I knew I'd never forget the moment. I recommend it to everyone. The great game of life can be unfair, harsh, depressing and even brutal. But sometimes life can make all the hurt worthwhile. And sometimes, when you least expect it, life can be even more fun than an epic Modern Warfare 2 session or a heart-thumping Street Fighter 4 fight. Gaming's great, but real life… hell, real life's the best.

Yeah, I know - big surprise. A significant percentage of the world's gamers will have been playing MW2 this week, so who am I to buck the trend? Despite the fact that it's Spec Ops and Multiplayer that I've really been waiting for, I dived into the single player campaign on Wednesday night. The story is completely fruitbat bonkers, and the first favela level is surprisingly insistent on killing you every five seconds, but Man Alive - when the campaign gets going, it really gets going. I'm not going to mention any specific scenes for fear of spoilers, but I absolutely loved the bit that references The Rock... particularly as it subtly sets up something that happens about five minutes later. It's been a long time coming, but I reckon that the non-stop parade of amazing set pieces has been well worth the wait.

James Orry, News Editor - Football Manager Live, PC
Something amazing happened this week. Something so life changing that I had to tell everyone in the office, sometimes more than once. Finally my dedication to Football Manager Live has been recognised, and after a season which has seen the Juicy Danglers rise from the ashes to become a new powerhouse of the game, I've been nominated for the Managers' Manager of the Season award. The team's bio has also changed, reflecting its current status in the game.

"The side have been applauded in recent times as a side who truly epitomise the 'beautiful game'. They manage to achieve great success with an open, flamboyant style which has resulted in the side becoming known as a favourite of the neutral supporters."

Sebastian Ford, Video Producer - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Xbox 360
There was one day this week where I spent all morning playing the Modern Warfare 2 online multiplayer. I'm a Domination player myself, though that may be because the bigger boys in team deathmatch were bullying me and calling me names. Sticks and stones my friends… Yeah… Either way I have always liked Domination for the fine balancing act of fighting and capturing hold points, and it's probably why I get so much enjoyment out of Battlefield 1943. If you can get your hands on C4 then I advise hiding it near a captured point, then you can blast your unwitting adversary as soon as you hear you're losing it. Bam! Who's the poopoo head now? Huh? HUH!?

been playing TF2 and WoW, with a smidgeon of Borderlands thrown in, but mainly this week i've been playing LOADS of Dragon Age: Origins, which is so strong i think it may just beat MW:2 to the top spot as GOTY

Yeah I'm hoping for Forza 3 (Loving the game so far, wish I chose it over Dirt 2) to be in the January sales as well mate. I'm sure there will be a couple of big names this Jan for cheap.

I would have shot the f*cker back ony I had like 10% health left and I was dead in 3 shots before I knew what was happening. On the game in general, it does seem to be better than the 1st from the 1/2 hour I played of it. I think I'll be getting it at some point, maybe Christmas. I hope it doesn't win GOTY so it might actually drop in price.

Congratulations Wes.. I remember when I proposed one evening I lent over the sofa and said to the Girlfriend.. "If we're still together when you reach 40 we had better make it official" then one day many years later she lent over with a smile and said "I'm forty this year".The happiest mistake of my life that I would never undo.

As for gaming I'm enjoying Modern Warfare2 (360) and Ratchet and clank - A crack in time.
I'm really looking forward to the arrival of my God of war collection import soon.
